Abstract

Birth before 37 weeks of gestation is classified as preterm birth (PTB) and represents the highest contributor to neonatal mortality, including both short- and long-term effects. Adverse effects of PTB include higher risks of poor health, poor growth, intellectual or mental disability, early onset of chronic disease, and others.
